The last queen of Cyprus goes to New York!

Two years ago Alpha Square created a performance on the terrace of the Centre of Visual Arts and Research (CVAR) about the life of Queen Caterina Cornaro. This show will be presented in New York on 9 November 2017! The United Solo Theatre Festival is an established annual happening in New York for which plays from all over the world, featuring one actor, are selected.

“Caterina: Last Queen of Cyprus” is an original stage play in English by Anthie Zachariadou, directed by Andreas Araouzos and designed by George Yiannou. Christina Marouchou portrays Queen Caterina, whose costume is a replica from a Cornaro portrait and is an actual exhibit at the CVAR.

In this play, Caterina Cornaro of Venice recounts her story, from 14 until her death, her life in Cyprus and her bond with the island, as well as her tragic and oppressed status as a pawn of ruthless politics aiming at the island’s domination.

On account of the New York presentation and popular demand, another three shows will be given on the CVAR terrace starting at sundown with a view of old Nicosia:

On 13, 14 & 15 June 2017, at 8.00 pm

285 Ermou Street, Old Nicosia.

Entrance is €10 and reservations for seats or tables can be made on telephone 7000 1140 or e-mail alpha@alphasquare.com.cy .
